Painter profiles - KEITH GRANT

Painter Profiles is a documentary series examining English artists. The original short films will take the viewer into the painters practice, capturing them at work and trying to understand how they see the world.
Jon Wealleans is a figurative painter who originally trained as an architect where he understood the arts of perspective and the study of shadows. Wealleans relished the computer free environment of the time, and today continues to work in a world without technological clutter, but in a house surrounded with a jamboree of carefully curated possessions. His work fuses bright primary colours with high brow and low brow objects, in natural still life scenes found in his 17th century London town house.
